Pop-up camping and car parks - planning guidance

The Government grants planning permission for temporary uses of land which can be undertaken without a planning application – known as permitted development rights.  This allows most temporary uses of land to take place without having to make a planning application.

To help businesses recover from the pandemic, the Government granted additional temporary permissions for 2021 allowing, cumulatively, up to 56 days of temporary uses where the necessary legal requirements are met.

This temporary measure has now ended and the period for temporary permissions has reverted to 28 days per year.
